New Arrivals....

In May 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Honk Kong to meet an anonymous source who claimed to have astonishing evidence of pervasive government spying and insisted on communicating only through heavily encrypted channels. That source turned out to be the twenty-one-year-old NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and his revelations about the agency's widespread, systemic overreach proved to be some of the most explosive and consequential news in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy. As the arguments rage on and the government considers proposals for reform, it is clear that we have yet to see the full impact of Snowden's disclosures.
Now, for the first time, Greenwald puts all the pieces together, recounting his high-intensity ten-day trip to Honk Kong, examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting for The Guardian, and revealing fresh information on the NSA's unprecedented abuse of power with never-before-seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himself.

At age two, Laura Bridgman lost four of her five senses to scarlet fever. At age seven, she was taken to Perkins Institute in Boston to determine if a child so terribly afflicted could be taught. at age twelve, Charles Dickens declared her his prime interest for visiting America. And by age twenty, she was considered the nineteenth century's second most famous woman, having mastered language and charmed the world with her brilliance. 

Serafina Sullivan, named for angels and a brave Irish prince, is haunted by dreams of her older sister, Lily Rose, a sprite, ethereal beauty who unexpectedly took her own life. A year has past since Lily's death, and now eighteen-year-old Finn and her college-professor father have moved back to Fair Hollow, her father's pretty little hometown alongside the Hudson River. Populated with socialites, hippies, and famous dramatic artists, every corner of this quaint, bohemian community holds bright possibilities - and dark enigmas, including the alluring Jack Fata, scion of the town's most powerful family.
Jack's smoldering looks and air of secrecy draw Finn into a dangerous romance...and plunge her into an eerie world of shadow and light ruled by the beautiful and fearsome Reiko Fata. Exciting and monstrous, the Fata family and its circle of strange, aristocratic denizens wield irresistible charm and glamorous power - a tempting and terrifying blend of good and evil, magic and mystery, that holds perilous consequences for a curious girl like Finn.

D-Day, or OVERLORD (the Allied invasion of Normandy codename) was the largest amphibious invasion in history. On D-Day itself 175,000 men, 3,000 guns, 15,000 tanks and 15,000 other vehicles were landed in Normandy by parachute, glider or across the beaches.
Some 70 years after the landings, this book tells this fascinating story not only through documentary photography and detailed maps but principally through a visual 'kit bag' of over 700 objects, selected for their importance to the outcome and experience of Operation OVERLORD and often arranged as the complete D-Day kit of many of the participants.

Before We Say "Goodnight" will show you how to captivate your child's imagination with a subject they can't get enough of - you. In this book, you'll discover an easy-to-learn three-step method for turning your life experiences, and those of your family, into great bedtime stories, all without notes or memorization. Best of all, you'll make bedtime one of the happiest parts of the day!

Eve and Cooper Morrison are Savannah's power couple. They're on every artistic board and deeply involved in the community. She owns and operates a letterpress studio specializing in the handmade; he runs a digital magazine featuring all the things Southern gentlemen. The perfect juxtaposition of the old and the new, Eve and Cooper are the beautiful people. The lucky ones. And they have the wealth and name that come being a part of an old Georgia family.
But things may not be as good as they seem.
Eve's sister, Willa, is staying with the family until she gets "back on her feet." Their daughter, Gwen, is all adolescent rebellion. And Cooper thinks Eve works too much. Still, the Morrison marriage is strong. After twenty-one years together, Eve and Cooper know each other. They know what to expect. But when Cooper and Willa are involved in a car accident, the questions surrounding the event bring the family close to the breaking point. Sifting between the stories - what Cooper says, what Willa remembers, what the evidence indicates - Eve has to find out what really happened. And what she's going to do about it.

In the sleepy Cape Winelands of South Africa the body of a young woman is found drifting in a river, and Detective Eberard Februarie is called in to investigate the case. It doesn't help matters that the young woman - Melanie Du Preez - was the daughter of a prominent local citizen. Professor du Preez is a lecturer in the university's Faculty of Law, and a conservative activist in the defense of the Afrikaans culture. Has a murder happened here, and if so, is the motive politics or something much more personal?
When Eberard discovers a scrapbook of lullabies that Melanie had collected over the years, it's a clue that could unlock the first case for him, if only he could figure out what he's looking for. A man struggling with his own demons, Eberard discovers even more secrets that lead him to the rotten core of this university town.

Graham Weber has been the director of the CIA for less than a week when a Swiss kid in a dirty T-shirt walks into the American consulate in Hamburg and says the agency has been hacked, and he has a list of agents' names to prove it. This is a moment a CIA director most dreads.
Weber turns to a charismatic (and unstable) young man named James Morris who runs the Internet Operations Center. He's the CIA's in-house geek. Weber launches Morris on a mole hunt unlike anything in spy fiction - one that takes the reader into the hacker underground of Europe and America and ends up in a landscape of paranoia and betrayal. 

Troubled by the feeling that she belongs nowhere after working i East Africa for fifteen years, Frankie Rowley comes home - home to the small New Hampshire village of Pomeroy and the farmhouse where her family has always summered. On her first night back, a house up the road burns to the ground. Then another house burns, and another, always the house of summer people. In a town where people have never bothered to lock their doors, social fault lines are opened, and neighbors begin to regard one another with suspicion. Against this backdrop of menace and fear, Frankie begins a passionate, unexpected affair with the editor of the local paper, a romance that progresses with exquisite tenderness and heat toward its own remarkable risks and revelations.
